Caitlin Confidential Gift Guide: The Domestic Sensualist
For the person who treats their home as their palace, these are gifts to add a touch of luxury and sensuality.
Valentino At The Emperor's Table Book ($150): I live and breath for Valentino: The Last Emperor documentary, so this latest release from Valentino himself was reason for excitement. In his new coffee table book, it showcases his many beautiful homes in Gstaad, London, Rome, New York, and Paris , and includes recipes from his personal chef. This book serves as inspiration for how to manage a well kept home.
Sleepy Jones Marina Silk Pajama Shirt in Navy ($295): Every domestic goddess should have the ultimate chic loungewear. A silk pajama shirt is a must have - even Katherine Hepburn would be jealous.
Aromatherapy Associates Bath Oils (prices starting at $48-$65): A leading expert in aromatherapy and therapeutic oils, these beautifully blended bath oils come in many collections: Relax, De-stress, Inner Strength, Support, and Revive (featured here). Revive is formulated with refreshing peppermint, grapefruit, and bergamot, and neroli oils, and is perfect to wake up and invigorate your morning routine. I also love this trio to be able to sample a few of the oils to find out which is your favorite.
Cire Trudon Candle (prices starting at $55): This is on my mother’s Christmas Wishlist. These are some of the most beautiful candles, handmade from beeswax and encased in Murano glass. Available in 17 scents, the Orange Blossom and the Moroccan Mint are heavenly.
Oslo Gold Flatware ($100): The modern domesticate has a set of gold flatware on hand. Beautiful to set the table with especially for a festive table around the Holidays.
The Big Cheese by Made by Mouth ($110): My favorite gift to receive when I entertain besides flowers (I can never have enough!) is a delicious cheese or a bottle of something sparkling. I love serving cheese with crackers along with a fruit chutney of some sort, as well as some toasted nuts. This cheese board is extra special including three cheeses, maple thyme pecans, fig almond spread, summer honey, farmhouse crisps, and more.
Metallic Playing Cards ($18): What coffee table is complete without gold playing cards? These are a set fit for Marie Antoinette! Available in Gold and Rose Gold.
